Coronavirus Resource Page

The Coronavirus Resource Page has moved. Please visit the new version of this page here.

In this unprecedented crisis, JFN is committed to be a resource for funders and for the entire community. It is critical that we know what our fellow funders are doing and that we try, as much as possible, to coordinate responses so as to have a greater impact on the ground. In these times of quarantines and social-distancing, we can’t afford to be isolated from our partners.

To that end, we are asking JFN members to answer this very short survey about your work and COVID-19.

Our goal is to collect information and share themes, determine gaps in resources, identify where we can be helpful, and point you to resources that already exist. Ultimately, we seek to map the philanthropic response and make sure that needs are being addressed.

Please fill out this survey at your earliest convenience.
